Addiction Care Treatment Program
My name is Sandie. Throughout my life I have battled with the disease of addiction. At the end of my active addiction, I wanted to end it all. I tried, but God had a different plan for me. I was incarcerated for three years in prison. During that time I found God. I prayed. I asked God to one day give me the opportunity. The opportunity to help women who were like me. Who suffer daily the way I had. I was released from prison and I went home. I was miserable, because my children were in active addiction and there was nothing I could do. I found out after spending ten months at home that I had to go to rehab. I tried talking to my probation officer to get a sentence modification. It was a no go. Even though I was miserable at home, seeing my children in active addiction and being so close to falling myself I was willing to put up with it. I was willing to put up with it because I was afraid of change. The day came and I had to go. I had spoken with some people at the palm house and that's where I would be living. I would be there for a year. I was so nervous and was dreading the days that were coming . Time flew by though and something amazing happened. My prayer was coming true.I grew in the program and was promoted to being a house parent. I was starting my journey in recovery and helping other women. The reward of seeing these girls come in broken and afraid like me, then seeing them change and start putting their lives together again. I’m telling you there is nothing like it. No price can ever be placed on it. This is all thanks to being here at the Palm house. Since then I have graduated the program. I am now the Assistant Women's Coordinator. Last and most importantly I have my children back and they are no longer in active addiction.

Athens YMCA
The YMCA of Athens is an older facility, but it offers a variety of fitness classes, two gyms, outdoor tracks, pools, etc. we have a family membership through work, which makes summer Y camp very affordable compared to other local cos or daycare. Also if you can afford it, get the spa membership. No kids allowed in the locker rooms. There's a hot tub and steam room. Also a lounge area with tv and towel and laundry service. You can also get a permanent locker to keep you workout gear in instead of supplying your own lock and taking your stuff home. It's an older facility and not fancy, but clean and functional. A good place for the whole family to get fit and have fun.
Tips & Advices
The best time of day to water a lawn is early morning or evenings - the cooler times of the day. Steer clear of watering during peak warmth and sun activity; not only can it be potentially damaging to plants, but more water is lost from evaporation, reducing efficiency.
Provided the pressure and flow are identical, and the length of time watering is equal, there should be no difference in in the amount of water delivered between manual or timed sprinkler systems. It’s all about pressure and flow that determines delivery amount.
In the warmer months you want to water three to five times a week. In cooler months, two to three times a week should be plenty. The goal is to get ¾ of an inch to 1 inch of water delivered each time. A good rule of thumb is a little more in summer, a little less in winter. If you live in a rainy area, you might not need to manually water at all in the winter.
A check valve is a valve that only allows flow in one direction, while preventing flow in the opposite direction.
The first variable to determining how long to run your sprinklers is seasonal; the second is sprinkler output. In warmer months, or peak growing season, water for approximately 20-30 minutes a day, every three to five days. Ideally your grass wants 3/4 of an inch to 1 inch of water. In the cooler, slower growing seasons, 10-15 minutes, two to three times per week. If you use automatic sprinklers, be sure to adjust them seasonally.
